YOU KNOW YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL OF THE 70'S IF:

1. You wore that rainbow shirt that was half-sleeves and the rainbow went up one sleeve, across your chest and down the other.
2. You made baby chocolate cakes in your Holly Hobbie Easy Bake Oven.
3. "Oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind Hey Mickey!" was your first favorite pop song.
4. You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad. You wore that Little House on the Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffled shirt with the high neck in at least one school picture.
5. You wanted your first kiss to be at the roller rink.
6. You tried to make sure that no boys would grab the comb out of your back pocket and skate away at the roller rink.
7. Your hairstyle was ever described as having "wings".
8. You thought Shaun Cassidy actually wrote the songs "Da Do Run Run" and "Hey There Lonely Girl".
9. Strawberry Shortcake and her friends Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry Pie.
10. You couldn't wait to be old enough to wear high-heeled shoes....the one's called "Yo Yo's" with the plastic heel with a hole through it!!
11. You carried a Muppets lunch box to school.
12. You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazard was your boyfriend.
13. You memorized every song on the "Annie" movie and know at least one person who immediately went out and got the Annie afro.
14. You had Star Wars action figures, too.
15. You thought unicorns were real.
16. It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV. Break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!
17. Light as a feather, stiff as a board.
18. You loved The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe so much you got the whole Chronicles of Narnia series for Christmas but never read the other books.
19. You crawled in a wardrobe somewhere and actually believed for a few seconds that you were on your way to Narnia.
20. You completely wore-out your Grease and Saturday Night Fever soundtrack albums.
21. You tried to do lots of arts and crafts things, like yarn & popsicle sticks or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom.
22. Shrinky-dinks! What was so appealing about these? I loved the Raggedy Anne & Andy shrinky dinks. I still remember how the oven smelled when they were "baking".
23. You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your miniature tape recorder up to the speaker.
24. You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that came when you ordered books from the Scholastic book orders your teacher would give you. Remember? The order catalogs looked like miniature newspapers.
25. You learned everything you needed to know about sex and your period from Judy Blume books.

I pretended MANY times I was Laura Ingalls! I must say that nearly every one of these applies to me...

1966 for me. My kids asked me if we had CARS!!! They need a good solid education on what to say and what NOT to say to old people.

This list is frightening-I had wings, and then in the later 70's -BIG hair. BIG I mean REALLY BIG!!!! (I'm from NY-it was inevitable)

I never played with strawberry shortcake or her friends-I think I may be a LITTLE older than that. (My daughter has a few of them-they smell really good!!)

Laura Ingalls? I have a friend who looked exactly like her-teeth and all. I was so jealous!!

No. :D

See, we're not old because we remember these things....ok-that's not right either. My father hasn;t a clue what he had for breakfast, but he can tell you what he wore the day Hitler took over his town in Poland. (HE is old...lol)

Well, if you're old, I'm right there with you!

You want to know what makes me feel really old? When my 7 year old daughter came in telling me about this really cool song she heard on a Bratz Doll CD..."You keep saying you got something for me. Something you call love, but confess." She proceeded to sing all the words to "These Boots Are Made for Walking". She couldn't believe that I knew the words too! My brother said that we should be singing "These Walkers Are Made for Boots".

O.K. "children", who's the oldest? I was born in 1941!

OK. You win! I will tell you this much, my husband was born in 1941 and he is 3 years older than I. If you and I made up a list, this 70's crowd would go "huh?".



Hairdos: the "bubble", the "flip", the "french twist", the "pixie".

Clothes: Weejuns, khaki green and yellow worn together, round collars, circle pins, gold cup socks, culottes, crinolines, full skirts, GIRDLES, garter belts, cuban heels and hats to church.

Music: Elvis, Beatles and everything in between.

Oh, I can't go on.....gotta get to work.
